Do you wish you could immerse yourself in exciting, innovative technologies and media while using practices of humanities and global thinking? Whether you enjoy crafting technology from scratch or designing new ways to imagine technological futures, you will create, develop and engage the technological world around you.
The digital culture certificate program in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts focuses on the creative exploration of how new media is influencing culture, or rather the way people live, learn, create and communicate.
Pursuing the digital culture certificate allows students to enhance their program of study with integrated, transdisciplinary training in creative processes and technical skills in new media with cultural applications.
The School of Arts, Media and Engineering educates the next generation of learners and empowers them with technofluency --- its development, application and implications. The School of Arts, Media and Engineering prepares students to be socially aware, critically thinking global citizens who strive to bring about positive change in a society that is increasingly shaped by new technologies.
All students are required to meet general university admission requirements:
Find and apply for relevant scholarships.
ASU has many financial aid options. Almost everyone, regardless of income, can qualify for some form of financial aid. In fact, more than 70 percent of all ASU students receive some form of financial assistance every year.
Degree-seeking undergraduates or nondegree-seeking graduate students may add the digital culture certificate. To add the certificate, students must meet with the digital culture academic success coordinator to develop a pathway that best meets the proficiencies for the work they are interested in pursuing. Students then meet with the academic advisor for their major to add the certificate.
A student pursuing an undergraduate certificate must be enrolled as a degree-seeking student at ASU. Undergraduate certificates are not awarded prior to the award of an undergraduate degree. A student already holding an undergraduate degree may pursue an undergraduate certificate as a nondegree-seeking graduate student.
Students can advance their career options with a undergraduate certificate. The certificate in digital culture helps students become more marketable to employers by adding this specialization to complement their major program of study. Digital culture students go on to work in a variety of fields, some of which are mobile app design, audio production, and autonomous systems.
